    Just-in-time announcement for the 2013 edition of the Calgary Pincade Show!

    Last year was a blast with a lot of games and a great crowd. This year looks to be even bigger/better. If you're in the Calgary area this weekend you'll want to check it out.

    I'm not directly affiliated with the show, though my STTNG will be there for all to play.

    I just noticed that there wasn't an event entry for this so I added one:

    #3 7 years ago

    Friendly Friday Bump. It is going to be FUN!

    #4 7 years ago

    Ahh I wanted to go so bad , but have a trip to vegas next week , couldn't fit both in , I'm disappointed .

    #5 7 years ago

    Oh,that's better.
    Make sure you check out PHOF,when your there.

    #6 7 years ago

    Great show this year, I'm going back tomorrow.

    #7 7 years ago

    Going on Sunday. Lots of fun I hope.

    #8 7 years ago

    It was a real good show. Lots of pins and the best part of it all is a huge % of the games were in excellent working condition. It's sure nice to go to a room with allot of machines where everything is working well. I think anyone that went could really appreciated the condition of the games and how well they were maintained by the owners who graciously brought them to the show.

    Good show, if you haven't made it yet, go, it's worth the $15 cover and all the games are on free play. Now if only they had a bar....that would have been "capital"

    #9 7 years ago

    Yeah, great show and had an awesome time today. I'll be there again tomorrow afternoon. Most of the machines are in great shape!

    Like from your house? OK.

    #12 7 years ago

    Okay, time to brag.

    Managed to snag 2nd place in the Iron Man tournament last night!

    ...we'll see if it holds by the end of the show.

    That IM machine (at the Jay Richardson Pinball booth) is really cool, decked out with LEDs, sub, shaker motor, and Invisiglass. It was a total blast to play!

    Jay also has an Emerald City edition WOZ there. Beautiful machine, really enjoyed a couple of games on that too. I have to say that even though the theme doesn't excite me, the game is really well done. Built quality and attention to detail is incredible, theme integration is engrossing as well. I can only hope to have a JJP machine in my collection one day...

    There is an STTNG there with a color DMD. I was blown away by how dramatic a difference it makes. Definitively goes on my wish list for my STTNG!

    Great show! I think I put in about 8 hours over the two days. So many pinballs, so little time...

    Oh I will , it will be my second trip to the phof , but I still wanted to make it to calgary . Hopefully next year works out.

    Sorry to tell you this,but I knocked you down to third last night.
    It didn't matter though we were both knocked out today.

    I also played the STTNG, and put up a score over a billion.
    My first time playing that game,lots of fun for sure.
    There was a 16 year old girl that got a score over 2.5 billion on the same game.
    She has the game at home as well.
    The ColorDMD was great to look at in that game.

    Great time,must go to again next year.
    I will have to bring my Predator to,I should have it by then

    Freezie,there were a lot of games for sale on your wish list at the show as well.
    Black Rose,WCS, Starship Troopers,T2.
    Nicest one out of the bunch was the Starship Troopers it was fully restored with powder coated hardware.

    #16 7 years ago
    Quoted from Darcy:

    Going on Sunday. Lots of fun I hope.

    Nice meeting you Darcy,I hope you had fun playing the Woz.
    Even with the light issues on mine.

    #20 7 years ago

    Frozen fish,lol.
    I think the guy with the ST was from Saskatchewan.

    #21 7 years ago

    Looked nice in the pictures !

    Quoted from pingod:

    I think the guy with the ST was from Saskatchewan.

    I think I know the guy ... any idea how much he wanted for it?

    #23 7 years ago

    I think it was around the 3500.00 mark.
    I know it was over 3000.00 for sure.

    #25 7 years ago

    Power surge from a generator took it out.
    Fried a printer to.
    To bad to,lots of people wanted to play it.

    I offered anyone who wanted to try it,could come by my place and play mine.
    Darcy came by to play mine,I had a string of lights go out on mine as well

    #26 7 years ago

    I am sure I have talked to him about it in the past smoke. I remember him saying he redid I it all and it was in the 35 range.

    #27 7 years ago
    Quoted from pingod:

    Sorry to tell you this,but I knocked you down to third last night.
    It didn't matter though we were both knocked out today.

    Well, I was still sitting @ #2 when I left the show Sunday around 12:30pm.

    ...but I haven't received a call to inform me of my great victory either.

    So, has there been any discussion of starting a league in the Calgary area? There has to be enough of us with enough machines in our collections to run a once-a-month league night of say, 15-20 players.

    #28 7 years ago

    Fytr, if you ever get the league going let me know our league in Edmonton may be interested in doing a Ryder cup challenge format vs our friends in Calgary. Was a great show Ironman stole the show IMO it was in fantastic shape, I hit 28M on it was in 2nd place when I left on Saturday night but I am sure that got beat as I scored the majority of those points on my final ball, lol... I have mixed review on Wizard of Oz, the machine looks fantastic but the gameplay was so so IMO... Wish they had the new Star Trek there looking forward to playing it at the Chicago Expo!!!!

    #29 7 years ago

    On Sunday I was at the Pincade 2013 it was a blast. This was the 3rd one I have attended. Jay has done a great job organizing these shows. The ability to play pins that I would never own is the advantage of this event. Personally, I not really interested in the video games. The combination of the video and pinball works great. I met a guy that had never played a real pinball machine, he had only played video pinball games.
    I did get to play the Emerald Pin (WoZ) once. It was interesting indeed! Then met Pingod and was invited over to play his Wizard of Oz. Thanks Again, Dan. There are a lot of levels to this pin.
    The Hobbit should be more amazing.

    Quoted from smokedog:

    The company name is Absolute Pinball & Amusements, in Saskatoon.

    #31 7 years ago

    Man I really have to make next years , bummer. Vegas trip is a yearly event for my wife , friends and I .

    #32 7 years ago

    I left just before close on Sat night and was in second place.
    Sunday the same guy finished with first and second place.

    I am not sure who took third,wasn't me
    Fytr,you must have knocked me down to third on Sunday then,thanks a lot

    That Ironman was kicking butt,super fast.
